The Campaign organization of Prince Dayo Adeyeye, the Prince Adedayo Adeyeye Movement (PAAM) has berated the Ekiti State Government over its refusal to allow the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) use the State owned Oluyemi Kayode Stadium, Ado-Ekiti for the flag-off of the party's governorship election campaign.

PAAM, which described the government's action as undemocratic, animalistic and condemnable, said it was a direct affront on President Goodluck Jonathan, who was billed to attend the campaign rally.

In a statement issued today, and signed by its Director General, Hon Bisi Kolawole, PAAM said the stadium is a property of Ekiti people and not an exclusive preserve of the All Progressive Congress (APC) government.

Kolawole, who said no amount of intimidation and harassment will prevent PDP from wining the June 21, 2014 governorship election, added that; "The campaign rally will be held in Ado-Ekiti whether Governor Kayode Fayemi and his tyrannical government like it or not."

He said; "Fayemi and his men are jittery. They had thought that PDP would disintegrate after the primary election but they have been disappointed. That is why they are now employing draconian tactics but they have failed.

"If they don't allow us to use the stadium, which was renovated and brought to the level that it is by the PDP governments of Ayo Fayose and Segun Oni, we will use Fajuyi roundabout or any other locations in Ado-Ekiti.

"Therefore, Fayemi and his men can keep hitting their heads on concrete walls by denying PDP the use of Oluyemi Kayode Stadium, Ekiti people will speak with their votes on June 21 and then, we will know who owns the Stadium between Fayemi and Ekiti people."
